Golden Herbed Potato Wedges

serves 4-6, depending on size of potatoes


3 large potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper or 1/4 teaspoon cayenne flakes

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon za’atar or oregano

1 teaspoon dried, powdered rosemary

1 teaspoon paprika


  • Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then each half into 3 long wedges.
  • Put all the seasonings, the water, and the oil in a large bowl. Blend them well.
  • Toss the potatoes in the herbal oil/water mixture.
  • Pour the potatoes and all the liquid into a baking pan. Straighten the potato wedges out so that you have one layer.
  • Bake at 450°F – 225° C for one hour.
  • Variation: Use juice of only 1/2 lemon and substitute white wine for the water.
